Response to James MacDonald

From Scot McKnight responds to James MacDonald’s article Why I am Not Emerging:

So, when I turn now to remonstrate with James Macdonald, I do so as one who sympathizes with his task and his calling, not as an ivory towered professor who rarely finds time for such things as the local parish ministry. Here’s my problem with James Macdonald’s recent examination of emerging and then his second part: I don’t think he has studied the movement deeply enough or widely enough to understand it. Therefore, his five point critique falls flat for me and it falls flat because it is not penetrating or fair.

I heard James talk about the emerging church earlier this year. Scot’s response is fair; hope they are able to connect for that lunch.
